I started with a permanent marker but I found engineers layout fluid (or engineer's blue as I call it) better.
For marking out, I use a vernier but I also have some strips of steel, at 3,4,5 and 6mm wide which I find a little easier for marking out my spacings.
I'm sure this tutorial will be a great help to folk Geoff, well done mate.

Chris
i also have vernier and a vernier hight guage for mark out i use a granite floor tile as a surface plate
you can make scribe blocks out of scrap 01 to give vaious hights to mark edge center lines and ie grind a chisel edge on a bit of 4mm and harden you have a 4mm hight scribe etc you can even grind both edges to give various hights
I mostly use them to mark taper lines to grind to on tangs and blades
but saves having a vernier etc

supurb how to BTW with proper detail and tips etc

That looks great for a first attempt phil
I dont file on the first line phil, i always leave a gap between the handle and the filework, but its up to you, if theres room, go for it its great to see someone having a go, not that difficult is it

Geoff.
